Korea Knocks out Germany in 2-0 Upset

Korea Knocks out Germany in 2-0 Upset

Mexico vs Sweden and South Korea vs Germany will start at 7.30 pm IST while Serbia vs Brazil and Switzerland vs Costa Rica will start at 11.30 pm IST on Wednesday.

The jinx of the World Cup Champions continues.

After Germany's exit from the group stage, Brazilian coach Tite feels that his team can take Russian Federation the World Cup.

The Swedish team has gone through some turbulent times at the World Cup, but coach Janne Andersson and captain Andreas Granqvist said the players have moved from bitter feelings they had and are ready for their final Group F game against Mexico in Yekaterinburg on Wednesday. First-half match remain goalless.

Chancellor Angela Merkel is wishing Germany luck against South Korea after the "torture" of the defending champion's last-minute win against Sweden, but she won't be attending the match.

England and Belgium face off in their final Group G encounter on Thursday, with an eye on who they will play in the knockout.

Hundreds of happy Mexicans subsequently mobbed the Korean embassy waving flags and chanting. We need to analyse this and it has to be said, very clearly, that we just do not deserve it.

In order to advance, Korea had to beat Germany under the premise that Mexico beats Sweden.




Team manager Oliver Bierhoff said he assumed that Low, who led Germany to their triumph in Brazil four years ago, would remain in his position.

South Korea itself was eliminated.

How true these rumours are and how much is down to a section of society looking to blame players whose parents were from outside Germany is open to conjecture, but Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan posing with Turkish president Recep Erdogan recently probably didn't help matters.

He said: "Until quite recently, we have probably been the most consistent, in terms of performance, team in the past 10, 12 years".

Aeromexico offered a 20% discount on flights to South Korea, tweeting an image of a plane with doctored "AeroCorea" livery and the slogan, "We love you Korea!"

In 2002, the Asians joint-hosted the tournament with Japan and finished in fourth place.

The Germans were very poor and deservedly beaten by Mexico in game one and only pipped Sweden thanks to a stunning last-gasp free-kick.
